. in michelle flournoy or ashton carter, there are two very, very qualified people who are waiting in the wings who would be very close to the president, and i think it's entirely appropriate that as a second term begins that the president would look for new leadership especially after secretary panetta's long and distinguished service. jamie: you know, matt, on the one hand i can understand any corporate ceo when they come in, they want to bring in people that are sitting at the major table that they know will be on the same page. on the other hand, it's important in the second administration to reach across the aisle and look for people to fill positions from the republican party. but is this symptomatic, the way the hagel nomination came out and the situation with susan rice of a problem we may have of positions not being filled during critical times? for example, i think about the atf position which has been open for some six months, and i believe it's andrew draver who is the person who president obama selected, and they haven't even set up a hearing for him yet. >> will you make great poi
